Rutherford County has been chosen as one of ConventionSouth magazine's Editors' Picks for the 2015 South's Surprising Recreational Havens for Groups list.
The list was comprised by ConventionSouth's editorial team in order to showcase destinations in the South that offer a surprising amount of recreational opportunities such as golfing, hiking and watersports, as well as numerous places to hold meetings and events. A total of 4 destinations from across the South were selected.
"Meeting Planners and event organizers from across the country look for unique destinations in the South to hold their meetings and events, and ConventionSouth's 2015 list of the 'South's Surprising Recreational Havens For Groups' provides these planners with interesting insight on some of the South's most unique cities for recreational fun," said ConventionSouth Editor Marlane Bundock. "Cities with diverse recreational offerings bring an added layer of enjoyment to a meeting or event. This allows meeting planners to create unique themes during their events, infuse teambuilding and networking activities into their events, and increase attendee engagement. By adding the element of recreation into an event, meeting planners create a more memorable experience for attendees and therefore, increase the success of the gathering."
ConventionSouth's editorial team researched cities throughout the South and selected the four cities based on their unique and diverse recreational offerings, attractions, meeting venues and accommodations for groups. The November issue of ConventionSouth will share this list with meeting planners from across the country that book meeting sites in the South. The other cities chosen were: Howard County, Maryland; Enid, Oklahoma; and Alexandria, Louisiana.
